It has been my experience trying to talk to Trumpets is that they really don’t care what Noam Chomsky thinks about Liberal Democracies. They have little interest in Hobbes, Locke or Rousseau and don’t even start with Keynesian economics or Adam Smith. This is an impulse mob, sex, guns, violence and money. They don’t want to debate philosophy they want to punch something, and you are not going to convince or calm them with the details or facts.
A lynch mob in the nineteenth century and a lynch mob today with a NASCAR mentality, “Hey let’s take our rifles in case something good happens!” They want to see the car hit the wall. The little guys who’ve been taking in in the rear falling in love with their captures and honeymooning in Stockholm.
“How many times do you have to get hit over the head until you figure out who’s hitting you,” – Harry S. Truman
They see government and Liberals as Godzilla come to destroy their Tokyo. They see Donald Trump as Mothera, a monster for their side. He’ll show those Liberals with their damn social programs and abortion on demand what for. “He’ll cut taxes giving me something to look forward to if I were ever to get a job.” They want a monster for their side and don’t care that he’s a monster.
“I would argue that the risks of policy intervention are still asymmetric. Too little support would lead to a weak recovery, creating unnecessary hardship for households and businesses. Over time, household insolvencies and business bankruptcies would rise, harming the productive capacity of the economy, and holding back wage growth. By contrast, the risks of overdoing it seem, for now, to be smaller. Even if policy actions ultimately prove to be greater than needed, they will not go to waste. The recovery will be stronger and move faster if monetary policy and fiscal policy continue to work side by side to provide support to the economy until it is clearly out of the woods.” – Jerome Powell, Chairman of the Federal Reserve

Two conservative sources saying exactly the same thing, but they might as well be George Soros dancing naked with Hillary Clinton around a pentagram. Nancy Pelosi wonders if Trump is baked on his steroid cocktail? I wonder if he is angry about sliding poll numbers, a recent poll showing Trump 21 points down and on a downward trajectory to where he might actually owe votes by election day. This is Trump the counter puncher, “So, you don’t want to vote for me huh?”
Then, as seen in the clear blue light of madness Trump reversed himself within hours and began tweeting about $1,200 direct payments and aid for small business. Hello? I think I hear my mother calling, I gotta go now. This isn’t political, or liberal or conservative. This isn’t a policy disagreement…this is crazy. Winston Smith is beside himself; Big Brother is a moron, and he must maintain the secret. A leader who reverses himself one hundred and eighty degrees in hours. I bet that makes asking for a raise kind of tough. Living through the looking glass high atop the Hotel Trump conveniently located in beautiful downtown Crazyville. The dirty little secret now so common as a newspaper left on a bus.
Napoleon reviewed the troops on the South lawn of the White House the other night in a movie that the rest of us will never see. A movie starring “Donald J. Trump millionaire, I own a mansion and a yacht. All the women want to sleep with me, and all the men want to be me. I lie about my wealth because I’m psychologically well grounded.”
I don’t know what Trumpy did in his past life to piss Karma off but she’s going to have her hands full on the next go round. Hannibal Lector wants another Big Mac. If Kafka were to give me no choice and I woke up as Donald Trump instead of a cockroach, lock the windows and hide the handguns. Could you imagine? The lawsuits, the politics, the evil children, the porn model third wife and the filthy criminality. Barr, Pompeo and McEnaney all trying to crash your executive time. The 24 hour “Open anytime madness.”
The ranks of the Secret Service are being thinned by agents in quarantine, but Arthur didn’t think about that when taking his cruise to the corner, it’s all just a good time. Two agents out for two weeks. “Okay, listen up. We’re all going to be working seven days for the next couple weeks because Carl and Jerry thought it would be fun to go for a ride with President Cheese whiz.” I can’t tell if it is me or if this whole thing is building to a grand finale. President – If I don’t get my way, I’ll trash the economy, or maybe I won’t. Vanity Fair is reporting Don Junior was trying to arrange an intervention to tell Trumpy to stop acting crazy at the hospital. A little late in the fourth quarter for that strategy, but little Don was unable to muster a family quorum and the idea died. “He might cut off my allowance, you tell him he’s crazy!”
Doctors, government officials, world leaders and judges all say the same thing about Donald Trump. Republican Party officials and former members of Congress all say the same thing about Donald Trump and even his own children are saying it but are too testicularly impaired to say it to the old man’s face. This is a time of great danger, Trump’s only skating on one roller skate and he’s angry. His Supreme Court picking is slipping away because of Covid-19. His reelection chances are slipping away because of Covid-19. And when he finds out who is responsible… brother, they better watch out!
